Abstract

Laser cooling in a Mg atomic beam is reported for the first time to our knowledge. Previous cooling experiments were performed by using visible or infrared lasers. The Mg atoms were cooled by using an intracavity frequency-doubled dye laser at 285 nm to reach the resonant 1S01P1, transition. Evidence of laser cooling was obtained even with the limited available laser power (≈1–2 mW).
